Webinar: Challenges facing Palestinian youth
March 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The webinar will review challenges facing Palestinian youth living in Lebanon, Jordan, and Gaza in pursuit of higher educational opportunities and abroad, and the Higher Educational opportunities available to youth outside of The West Bank and the challenges faced by this younger generation.
Speaker: Deya’ Leonard Dresner – Executive Director of Leonard Education Organization
“In order to insure sustainable success for the students, I believe that one must review and support all the challenges the youth will face, from preparation for an American undergraduate education all the way to their return home for work.” Deya’ gained this perspective from years of experience managing key elements of international programs focused on educational opportunities for marginalized Palestinian youth. In the Leonard family, Deya’ who’s mother is from Nazareth and father from Tennessee is the second generation to focus on the education of Palestinian youth. Her strong relationship, program and team-building skills include internship programs, mentoring partners for students, undergraduate education and job placement support, and most recently Friends of LE•O support groups in the students countries of residence. Deya’ has worked closely with over 30 American colleges, to create sustainable programs to insure a student’s success in future leadership roles and fulfill their true potential.
